Separate settlements negotiated for couple injured in head-on collision – $150,000 and $1,125,000 Settlements

On Oct. 19, 2010, plaintiff Edward Kehoe, age 82, was lawfully operating a 2007 Lexus 350 traveling eastbound at 55 mph on Victory Boulevard (RTE 171) in York County. His wife, plaintiff Mary Kehoe, age 79, was a restrained front seat passenger. The defendant was traveling westbound on Victory Boulevard at a speed of 55 mph when she drifted off the road. She tried to correct herself, but lost control of her vehicle, crossing the double yellow lines and striking the Kehoe vehicle head-on.

At the scene, Mrs. Kehoe showed visible signs of injury and had to be carried from the scene. ER services transported both plaintiffs to Riverside Regional Medical Center, where they underwent extensive testing.

Mr. Kehoe was diagnosed with blunt trauma to the left anterior chest wall without evidence of rib fractures or significant hemopneumothorax; probable pulmonary contusion left side base; abdominal wall abrasion; and right ankle fracture involving predominately the calcaneus. He remained hospitalized until Oct. 26, 2010, at which time he was released and given orders for rehabilitation therapy. He later fully recovered.

Mrs. Kehoe was diagnosed with a closed right ulnar shaft fracture; right fracture dislocation of the ankle with intra-articular pilon fracture; and left grade 3 open fracture dislocation of the ankle with intra-articular pilon fracture. She underwent multiple surgeries and medical care, and was discharged from Riverside on Nov. 8, 2010. She received inpatient therapy at Gardens at Warwick Forest through Feb. 15, 2011, and was then transferred to Riverside Rehabilitation Institute where she stayed until her discharge home on March 8, 2011. She continued to follow up with outpatient care. Plaintiff sustained a permanent injury to her ankle but otherwise has fully recovered.
